[Qemu-discuss] virtio-scsi really slow init with ArchLinux kernel

I'm getting a 15 second delay on every VM boot when using the
ArchLinux kernel and using the virtio-scsi-pci system.

QEMU emulator version 2.12.0 running on Arch Linux (4.17.4 kernel),
booting the same.

I run qemu like so:

qemu-system-x86_64 \
   -nodefaults \
   -machine type=pc,accel=kvm -smp cores=2,threads=1 -cpu host -vga
vmware -m 2G \
   -device virtio-scsi-pci,id=scsi0,num_queues=2 \
   -device scsi-hd,drive=hdroot

See the 15 second hang here:

This is specific to the Arch Linux kernel and the virtio-scsi system.
IDE boots fast. If I boot an Ubuntu kernel with the exact same
virtio-scsi settings then there is no delay for the "Power-on or
device reset occurred" and it boots instantly.

Anyone know what is going on or what I can do to debug this?
